Mumbai: Scores of railway offenders are being let off with measly fines of Rs 50, after the Centre scrapped the Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes on Tuesday night.
The Railway Protection Force was forced to suspend its drive against the offenders after realising the magistrate’s court did not have change to hand out in exchange of higher denomination notes.
The drive, launched on Wednesday, netted about 793 offenders and a total fine of Rs 84,130 was collected from them. Of these 793, 380 were caught while trespassing and were made to pay
Rs 50 on an average, even as the maximum fine is Rs 500.
Similarly, 125 people were caught for creating nuisance and a fine of Rs 70 were imposed on each of them, even as the maximum fine is Rs 250. An officer from the Railway Protection Force said, “We waited at the court till 2 pm on Wednesday to know whether currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 will be accepted. Once it was made clear that these notes will not be accepted, the offenders were asked to pay a minimum penalty and let off.”

After knowing about the IR decision of not tendering the cash for cancellation of 10000+ tickets, these guys may not turn up at all for cancellation. It would be a matter of interest to IT officials as well as IR officials, to keep a track on the occupancy of such dubious high value tickets booked in these 2-3 days. IR has only to gain out of this. Last minute confirmation of Wait listed and upgradation to higher classes will be a pleasant experience for many paxs.!!

To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
